Recently Completed Stormwater Projects

Sarno Road/Bell Street Drainage Improvements
The scope of work includes the removal of approximately 400 l.f. of deteriorated 48" diameter metal storm drain and replacement of same with reinforced concrete pipe. Additionally, 125 l.f. of metal storm drain pipe under Sarno Road will be rehabilitated by the insertion of a cure-in-place polyethylene liner. The resulting work will reduce street flooding conditions within the Ixora Park Subdivision.

Swift Street Stormwater Improvements
Provide flood control by enhancing drainage existing system, includes pipe replacement and lining.

Stormwater Master Plan Master
A stormwater master plan for the entire Crane Creek drainage basin, including the Hickory Ditch sub-basin, has been completed to address flood control and water quality issues in this area of District 5. This study was jointly funded by St. John's River Water Management District (SJRWMD), City of Melbourne and Brevard County. This area in South Brevard County includes the cities of Melbourne and West Melbourne as well as unincorporated Brevard County. The master plan is being used to identify local flooding areas and possible solutions, identify possible best management practices (BMPs) to improve water quality into the Indian River Lagoon and identify possibilities available to increase recharge to the superficial aquifer underlying the watershed.

Eber Road Widening & Babcock Street Realignment
Retrofit roadway and nearby development for stormwater drainage and treatment improvements.

Charles Drive
Upgrade of stormwater outfalls along Charles Drive/Almar Subdivision. When complete, will provide flood control and treatment by replacing existing pipe system and construction of detention pond.
